Police: Wal-Mart worker arrested after caught stealing Oreo cookies

A Wal-Mart worker in northwest Indiana is facing charges Thursday after authorities said she snacked on some Oreo cookies without paying for them.

Police arrested Penny Winters after store surveillance cameras caught her opening up the packages of cookies inside the Portage, Ind. store.

However, it wasn’t the first time she had swiped the sweet snack. Winters, who is a full-time maintenance worker, admitted to authorities she had been stealing cookies once or twice a week over the past seven months.

Winters also confessed that she had been taking junk food from the company every week for four years.

Winters is facing one count of felony theft.
